Residents and others passing through Gahanna likely have noticed the new design on Gahanna's signs.

The idea of the redesign is to encourage residents to shop at local businesses, according to information from the city's development department.

The back facing of each sign has been repainted with the city's logo and "Buy Gahanna" slogan. The other side has the city's logo and Web address on the left and the slogan, "Think Globally Shop Locally," on the right.
